Welcome to Guitars & All That Jazz

Welcome to Guitars & All That Jazz

Guitars & All That Jazz was a radio station that webcast via Live365 for 11 years, ending in June 2011. The playlist consisted of guitar instrumentals, jazz, big band, early rock 'n' roll, lounge music and classic easy listening.

I hope to share some of this music with you via this blog. Most of it will be taken from the original vinyl (LPs and 45s) , cassettes and the occasional commercially unavailable CD.

Here's hoping you'll find something to enjoy. Please note files are available only for a limited time.

I urge you to purchase the digital version of the albums featured, either on CD or via download, wherever possible.

There are now two music streams. Click the appropriate player to the right.

2. Tiki Shores: Music to sweep you away to a tropical isle, a South American dance floor or a bossa nova on the beach at Rio. About 4.5 hours of classic exotica music, Latin rhythms and bossa nova.

Bobby Darin - Beachcomber

Here's Beachcomber, the "A" side of that 1960 Bobby Darin instrumental single Autumn Blues that was posted a few weeks ago. Again, the arrangement is by jazz great Shorty Rogers with Darin at the piano. The MP3 is from the 45.


Beachcomber was included on Darin's album Things & Other Things, which is available as a download. The album was also released on CD in 2004 but has been discontinued. Copies are still available, however, from the Amazon Marketplace.

From YouTube, here's the stereo version of Beachcomber. Great sound, but you may wish to ignore the accompanying goldfish visuals.
